Join fine art perfumer Michael Borkowsky in this fantastic opportunity to design and create your very own perfume! This 2 hour workshop begins with Michael introducing his unique, artistic approach to perfumery and giving a working demonstration of how to make an Eau De Toilette. Michael will guide you through all aspects of perfume design including an explanation of fragrance types, an introduction to fragrance notes and how to blend oils to achieve the perfect fragrance. Then, under Michael’s support and guidance, you will have a chance to make a 30ml perfume of your own by choosing from an extensive selection of essential oils and fragrance oils. You will also get the chance to decorate the bottle and you will be able to take the perfume home on the day.
This workshop is suitable for all genders and is a great introduction into the art of perfumery, a great way of learning a new skill and a brilliant opportunity to create something truly unique.
